What do travellers to England need to know about social class?
It isn't correct that "Lords no longer have a right to sit in the House of Lords now". All members of the House of Lords are 'Lords', but they are mostly appointed (mostly for reasons to do with politics and/or bribery). There are currently 677 appointed 'Life Peers', 88 'Hereditary Peers' (in general, these peerages can only be inherited by men), and 24 'Lords Spiritual' (senior bishops in the Church of England) - see this Wikipedia article.
